Belladone.

I would like to hijack these honeymoon posts to blog about my new Belladone dress. Well, sort of… I have been meaning to take pictures of it for a good few weeks (I say “I”, I actually mean my rather lovely husband), but we hadn’t found anywhere nice to take them. HELLO TUSCAN SUNSET. Seriously, look at that light.

We were almost ready for an early night when this bright light came flooding through the window, so we legged it outside for some photos.

I have been meaning to make this dress for ages and I really love the final product. It fits me perfectly and came together like a dream. My only change would be to add a lining to the skirt next time. The dress has had multiple outings already, and in true British spring/summer style, I haven’t yet had a chance to wear it without tights. I used a mid-weight cotton, meaning that the unlined skirt/tights situation has left me almost showing my pants more than once.

Needless to say, I’ll be making more of ElĂ©onore’s patterns, I already have a sailor version of the Reglisse dress in the planning….
